It has been a constant struggle in my house to get my toddler to eat fruits and veggies that are not either hidden in baked goods or served in a Happy Family pouch. Rather than just give up and let her eat Cheerios and crackers all day (which admittedly, some days I do let her), I’m always on the lookout for new ways to get her to eat healthy.
Recently I purchased a bag of apple chips from the supermarket, which she happily ate. The problem? They were $2.99 for a small bag that had only two servings in it. A quick look around Pinterest showed that I could make my own fresh, homemade apple chips, for little more than the cost of an apple.Read More
What a nice little treat to have such a happy, heartwarming RHOC episode. It’s not everyday we are treated to husbands being nice to their wives and friends saying I’m sorry. (This set tends more towards the grudge-holding and name-calling.) Let’s talk some RHOC recap!Read More
While I don’t consider myself an actual “expert” on any topic (okay, maybe The Real Housewives of select cities), I do feel there are certain subject matters on which I can offer pretty good advice. One of those is daycare. I have worked in four different daycares at various points in my life, and most recently I was the director of one for close to three years.Read More
I’m not optimistic that anything will actually be revealed in this “tell-all” special about the Real Housewives of New Jersey. But here’s to hoping! Let’s get into this exciting Watch What Happens Live teaser of the new season of RHONJ!
I thought this was going to be a pre-season Reunion-type show, but it was more like a collection of snippets of Andy talking one-on-one with each of the ladies. I actually didn’t like the format. Too much flipping back and forth between people.
Here’s what we learned tonight:Read More
*I wrote this post when my daughter was six months old. She is now almost two years old, and (usually!) sleeps through the night.*
It’s a six word question I have come to dread these past few months. I get asked this question often, sometimes by complete strangers. Then, depending on which answer I give, I am judged. What are these terrible six words, you ask?
Is she sleeping through the night?Read More
Less than four weeks to go until my due date and woo hoo- today I found out I’m already one centimeter dilated! Immediately I assumed that meant I would be going into labor soon (like tomorrow)…but then I found out it can still take weeks to get to the labor stage. Sigh.Read More
I have literally been counting the days until my daughter started daycare. I was desperately looking forward to having some free time a few mornings a week, as well as being excited for L to have some consistent social interaction with her peers.Read More

God knows I love Terry, but an entire scene centered around him clipping his toenails? Perhaps if he did that in private, he would get out of the doghouse. (Not likely, though, what with the size of the stick up Heather’s ass. Just so you know, Heather, you did say “tutor” twice and I would have cracked the same joke as your hubs.) Maybe an alcohol-fueled weekend away with the rest of the Housewives will help?
Get out your best wine-tasting fedora (Slade) and let’s talk RHOC recap!Read More
The following is a guest post written for The Naughty Mommy by Lauren Kretzer.
I think most of us can agree that change is not easy. Few people choose to voluntarily step outside their comfort zone with any regularity – it’s too overwhelming!Read More
